JUL 26 - AUG 10

The teachings at the Festival

During this year’s summer festival we have an unique opportunity to revisit the precious teachings given by Venerable Geshe-la during his last public teachings in Portugal in 2013. On that occasion over 7000 fortunate disciples gathered together to receive a great banquet of teachings and heart instructions from our Precious Spiritual Guide. Now for the first time we have the opportunity to receive a detailed transmission and commentary to these teachings from Gen-la Dekyong and Gen-la Jampa.

In week one, we will receive the blessing empowerment of Great Mother Prajnaparamita from Gen-la Dekyong together with the special transmission of the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (Heart Sutra). This sutra contains the heart essence of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom teachings. Based on the precious text New Heart of Wisdom, Gen-la Dekyong will help us to extract many hidden meanings that will allow us to draw closer and closer to Venerable Geshe-la’s ultimate correct view, according to Nagarjuna’s intention.

In week 2, Gen-la Jampa will give a transmission and commentary to The Blissful Path, the condensed self-generation sadhana practice of Buddha Vajrayogini which is perfect for those new to Highest Yoga Tantra or for busy modern practitioners wishing to do a short daily self-generation practice.

Gen-la Jampa will also give the transmission of The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability and its commentary Keajra Heaven, the special instruction of how to reach the Pure Land of Vajrayogini without our abandoning our present human body.

During this festival we can feel that we are sitting at the feet of our Root Guru, receiving his unequalled blessings and continuous inspiration. How wonderful!

The empowerment and teachings are open to everyone regardless of experience.
